October 25, 1998

BERKELEY, Calif. - Saturday's game marks the 51st meeting between Cal and Oregon State with the Bears holding a 30-20 advantage. Cal has won the last five in a row, including 27-14 (1991) and 13-12 ('95) victories in Corvallis. In 1996, the Bears and Beavers battled through three overtimes before Cal prevailed, 48-42, in Memorial Stadium. Last year in Berkeley, the Bears raced to a 33-0 lead and won, 33-14, for their only Pac-10 victory. QB Justin Vedder completed 16-of-28 passes for 215 yards and 4 TDs, with two going to Dameane Douglas.

Defense Leads to Points
Cal, which ranks second in the Pac-10 in both total defense and turnover margin, has used those turnovers to great advantage this season. The Bears have created 19 turnovers while committing just nine. Through the season's first seven games, Cal has converted the turnovers into seven TDs and a field goal. That doesn't even include a pair of safeties and another touchdown that resulted after Cal got the ball after a safety. Overall, 60 of Cal's 115 points this year are a result of big plays by the defense (52.1%).

Douglas Jumps to 4th in Cal Career Receiving
Senior wide receiver Dameane Douglas, who entered the season ranked 19th on the Cal career receiving chart with 95 catches, has jumped to fourth place, now totaling 151 receptions with the Bears. Douglas has accumulated more than half his total in the last nine games, starting with a 12-catch performance at Arizona last November. He followed that with 11 catches in the '97 finale at Stanford and has grabbed at least 10 catches in a game three more times this season, including a school-record-tying 13 at USC. During the nine-game stretch, Douglas has 78 receptions for an average of 8.7 per game. Now, both the school career and single-season marks are in his sight. Douglas has 56 catches through seven games this season, an average of 8.0 per game. At that pace, he would finish with 87 this year and 183 for his career.
